Hi everyone, what I am posting today was certainly not written by me & I am not sure if the father who shared it wrote it or shared it second hand, but he is credited on the bottom.
I am part of a email group of people who all have one thing is common, a loved one with the Agenesis of the Corpus Calloseum. This was something that was shared: ...... Have you ever wondered how God chooses moms for the special children? Somehow, I visualize God walking on earth, selecting His instruments for the preservation of the human species with great care and deliberation. As He observes, He tells His angels to take notes on a giant flipchart. "Elizabeth Souza, will have a boy, the mother's patron saint, St. Matthew. Mariana Ribeiro, girl, mother's patron saint, St. Cecilia. Claudia Antunes, this will have twins, patron saint ... send St. Gerard to protect her. He is accustomed to quantity. " Finally, God passes a name to an angel, smiles and says: "For this one, send a deaf child. " The angel is curious, and asks: "Why her, Lord? She's so happy. " "Exactly," replied God, smiling. "Could I send a special child to a mother who does not know laughter? That would be cruel. " "But will she have enough patience?", asks the angel. "I do not want her to have too much patience, or she will drown in a sea of despair and self-pity. When the initial shock and sadness passes, she'll handle it. I watched her today. She has a knowledge of herself and a sense of independence that are rare and, at the same time, so necessary for a mother. See, the child I'm going to give her has his own world. She has to bring this child to the real world and it will not be easy. " "But Lord, I do not think she even believes in God." God smiles, "That does not matter, I can fix that. This one is perfect. She has the exact dose of selfishness that will be needed. " The angel gasps. "Selfishness? Is this a virtue?" God nods. "If she is not able to separate herself from the child occasionally, she will not survive. Yes, here is the woman whom I will bless with a child less "perfect" than the others. She still does not realize it, but she is to be envied. She will never consider banal any word uttered by her son. Any simple babbling from her child, she will receive as a great gift. No child's achievement will be seen by her as a commonplace. When the child says "Mommy" for the first time, this woman will be a witness to a miracle, and she will recognize it. When she shows a tree, a sunset or a sunshine to her child and tries to teach him to repeat the words "tree" and "sun", she will be able to see my creations in a way that few people are able to see them. I will permit her to clearly see the things I see - Ignorance, cruelty, prejudice - and I´ll make her stronger than all that. She will never be alone. I'll be here by her side. " "And what will be the patron saint of this mother?" asks the angel, pen in hand. God smiles again "None. She will just have to look at herself in a mirror" ..... shared by: Rodrigo de Paula, father of Cecilia, the prettiest girl in the world.
